The Elusive Civet Cat: Part 2

Thoughts of the Day: Sometimes, people's attitudes towards animals really sicken me. Okay, I'm not going to be a hypocrite and say I'm a 100% pure vegetarian. I eat chicken and cow just like the next guy, just that I don't cage and torture them for my own entertainment. Some people just kill them NOT out of self defence but for sport. Disgusting! I mean, God created this planet not just for people alone but also for other creatures but look at what it's becoming...


Firstly, you should know, the civet cat is a protected species in Malaysia so for those of you who've been munching 'ko chee lei' in some exotic restaurants, you've been having an endangered animal for lunch.

Anyway, that's not what this post is about. This civet cat at my workplace has been occupying the higher places in our hall. Of course, this would not have been any issue if the little fellow had not been leaving maggot producing carcasses there as well.

Imagine, you are in the hall, listening to the speaker and suddenly *plop* *plop* *plop*, you are hit by a shower of disgusting stinky maggots from above. Trust me, if you smelled those maggots, you'd have thrown up.

So they finally baited and trapped it with bananas. No, they aren't gonna kill it. They are just going to release it in the jungle on the outskirts of Seremban where it will be safe from humans (and us humans will safe from it and the rain of maggots, he he he)

Anyway, below is a pic of the adult civet cat before it was released.

Cute, eh? Well, don't entertain any illusions about keeping one as a pet. They are fierce fellows and still wild animals, so they might take off your finger if you're not careful.
